“God will restore for you the years the locust has stolen. 
And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord.”
Joel 2:25-26

New Life
We are excited to share that Karrington has been accepted to New Lifehouse, an adolescent girls program of Teen Challenge of Oklahoma. New Lifehouse is a 12-15 month residential home that includes mentoring, biblical counseling, group & personal studies and an accredited education at The Cross Christian Academy. 
On August 29, 2013, we were able to discharge Karrington from a behavioral health center and drive one hour outside our city, arriving at New Lifehouse. Our time spent at New Lifehouse was amazing. We toured the facility, met the staff, mentors/advisors and education director. We were able to help Karrington get situated and comfortable with her new home for the year.

New Lifehouse serves 20 girls at a time and we were thrilled at the timing of an available spot to be in this program. We will talk weekly by phone and visit monthly, visits will increase to Christmas break at home and one weekend a month at home.

Aside from the program, the students may join Teen Challenge in one mission trip a semester. The next two trips are to Rwanda, Africa and to the Dominican Republic to serve at orphanages, feed the poor and outreach to prostitutes. With our heart for missions, we pray that Karrington will be able to participate in these trips.

We are passionate about Karrington’s redemption from her past trauma, neglect, abandonments, abuse and wounds. We are confident that Teen Challenge will meet her needs. You are part of “Team Karrington” and we stand firm that healing will indeed come. We look forward to Karrington’s  journey through Teen Challenge and for her return home, to church, school and to a New Life!

“I’ve believed in this ministry since its very beginning and I continue to support it. I consider it a real privilege to endorse this work. 
Thank God for Teen Challenge!” Reverend Billy Graham


The New Lifehouse program through Teen Challenge runs primarily through church and personal donations from family and friends. The average cost of a facility such as Teen Challenge (and trust me, we called over 50 throughout the nation) is an astounding $10-15,000 a month. Teen Challenge offers a monthly tuition of $2,300.

PLEASE HELP SPONSOR Karrington’s $2,300 monthly tuition. Tuition covers: room/board, food, daily counseling, private Christian school, two sports activities (volleyball and basketball) and other living necessities.
